Album Notes
“Virtuoso A Homage to my Ancestors is 10 String Spanish Classical Guitarist Matthew Fagan’s brilliant exciting Classical, Spanish Classical & Flamenco, Celtic and Renaissance Music CD recorded in America in 2013. A spectacular musical journey celebrating the Parkes family, Matthew Fagan’s internationally renowned Virtuoso Ancestors. Matthew has especially arranged Violin and Piano repertoire as performed by his ancestors for classical guitar, featuring a stunning repertoire including – 'Flight of the Bumblebee' (Rimsky-Korsakov), 'Caprice No. 24' (Niccolò Paganini), 'Rondo `A La Turca`' (Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart), 'Czardas Hungarian Dance' (Vittorio Monti), 'Traditional Summer and Winter 1st Movements from “The Four Seasons” (Antonio Vivaldi), Flamenco Dance “Solearas” and Spanish Dances “El Vito” & “La Partida”. Matthew has recorded these stunning virtuosic concert pieces as a homage to his Great Grandfather-Albert Parkes, Grandfather- Milton Parkes and Great Uncles Cecil and Kingsley Parkes. Cecil Parkes, Matthew’s Great Uncle, was a child prodigy and toured with International star soprano Dame Nellie Melba. Matthew’s grandfather Milton was a celebrated concert pianist, accompanying his brothers and was also a concert soloist. Kingsley had also made his concert debut at the age of nine and he had played over a thousand concerts by the time he was eighteen. The boys' father, Albert Parkes, was a celebrated concert violinist from Covent Garden, Great Britain, and emigrated to Australia in the 1890’s.. Here is some links to Film footage of Matthew’s Great Uncle, child Prodigy Violinist Cecil Parkes. The film was retrieved from the National Film archives and is the first music film in Australia from EFTEE productions from the 1930’s.
